    One of the Pastors at church sent me an MP3 to edit into iMovie for a video for Sunday from his iTunes.

    When I got his MP3, iTunes is asking for his username and password. He originally encoded it off the CD.

    There's nothing illegal for us, our CCLI license allows us to do this for music during our services...

    What's the deal? It wasn't purchased from iTunes...

    Can you play it in the Finder (in column view)?

    Using Windows machine right now - cannot play it using Quicktime - says not authorized. It is an .m4p.

    He gave me his password, but iTunes says that the account doesn't exist...

    Never mind everyone - he did purchase it from iTunes and he changed his iTunes login from the one that was coming up.

    Thanks for your help.

    Was this an MP3 or an AAC? Does itunes even sell AAC? Nonetheless, I'm glad you were able to work it out.

    M4P is a protected AAC. iTunes DRM files are *only* AAC. Actually, I think the DRM-free ones are also M4A unprotected AAC files.
